Issue Details

I am using NI USB-6501 for my project. Since this is the only NI hardware that I am using, installing the whole NI-DAQmx driver on my computer is unreasonable. Is there a way to install only the USB-6501 driver on my computer?   

Solution

There is no way to install only a portion of drivers or only a specific driver for a USB device through NI-DAQmx.

NI-DAQmx as a driver covers a number of devices and NI do not provide smaller drivers for each device or subset devices.

Additional Information

Refer to NI-DAQmx and LabVIEW Compatibility  to check compatibility among different DAQmx drivers and LabVIEW versions.
